Merchant’s House Museum

29 E. 4th St.

Tmerchants-househe Merchant’s House Museum is New York City’s only family home preserved intact—inside and out—from the 19th century.

Built in 1832, this elegant red brick and white marble row house on E. 4th St. was home to a prosperous merchant family and their Irish servants for almost 100 years. Complete with the family’s original furnishings and personal possessions, the house offers a rare and intimate glimpse of domestic life in New York City from 1835-1865.
